HashMasta on The Best Offense...IS FIRE!!! (please help)

So I have 2 suggestions.

The first is that you should replace your Izzet Guildgate with Swiftwater Cliffs since it does same thing just gain life.

Another is that you need to get rid of the valakut for something like Fireball or something around those lines.

Also depending on where you play, it may not hurt to have a Sea's Claim In Sideboard for your little tron players

Othewise it is a good deck +1

A more experienced friend suggested to remove the red cards, which may destabilize the deck especially in terms of mana base without adding that much benefits.

So Firebolt, Lightning Bolt and Fireball out, same for Lightning Angel and RakavolverAt this point there is no point in keeping Highland Lake, Sulfur Falls and Swiftwater Cliffs, which can be replaced by regular islands.

Hi! Fun deck in my favorite tri-color combo! Let's see if I cant't help ya out!

usually I give suggestions for decks as a whole, but seeing how your mana base is just basics, I'll focus on that instead so as not to info dump haha

This is the basic template for a mana base that I use. It's consistent but not optimal; it gets the job done.

this list will run you around $50, which is very budget relatively but I understand if that's too much for you at the moment. Investing in your mana base is the safest thing to invenst in because you can use all of these for any other Jeskia build, or scrap the parts for 1-2 other multicolor decks. If you stick with this deck forever that's okay too, because even though you may change the decks' parts, strategy, and synergies, your mana base will remain relatively intact.

I would replace Mercurial Geists with Bloodwater Entity and you might want to drop either some other dual lands like Swiftwater Cliffs or maybe a few Evolving Wilds to ensure you'll have a proper color mix to get you started.

I'm using the ring menu displayed by the site to do this, so there's no reason you can't do it yourself next time. ;) But let's see.

You only have 4 spells each in White, Red and Green, so one solution is to halve the number of Plains, Mountains and Forests in the deck and add on six more Islands (or maybe 7 Islands 1 Swamp). However, that also leaves you in the position of maybe drawing those colors and not getting the colors you need.

Another solution would be to trade out ALL the non-blue lands for taplands: 3 each of Tranquil Cove, Swiftwater Cliffs and Thornwood Falls, 4 Dismal Backwater, and 7 Islands. This is a fairly slow mana base, but you probably won't be caught unawares. Another option in this vein would be to run 4 Dismal Backwater, 4 Jungle Shrine and 12 Islands, but this leaves you jammed if you end up with more than 4 R, W and/or G cards in hand. (It's statistically unlikely that you would, but our job in mapping out the lands is to plan for everything that can happen... especially the unlikely stuff.)

A third is mana-fixing. Rupture Spire essentially has a casting cost, but it still gets you any color. Shimmering Grotto is standard mana-filtering. Those, 12 Islands and your Birds of Paradise would probably be sufficient.

Finally, as to what to replace the Cloudfin Raptor with: Cloud Sprite, Faerie Squadron, Jace's Phantasm, Zephyr Sprite or -- my personal recommendation -- Judge's Familiar.
